Drinking water from a wine glass

Fatwa ID: 03230

Answered by: Maulana Muhammad Adnan​




Is it allowed to keep these as normal glasses, and drink everyday halal drinks (water, juice, soda etc) from them? Or is it haram to do so?

What you are referring to as “wine glasses” are not specific to the usage of wine, a lot of dessert parlours and restaurants use them for desserts and other purposes.

Abu Tha’labah al-Khushani relates that he asked the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): We live close to some the people of the Book and they cook pork in their pots and drink wine in their vessels. The Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “If you can find something else, eat and drink from it. If you cannot find anything else, then wash them with water and eat and drink.”
